until my papers for the superpac were filed with the secretary of the fec. >> no superpac yet. still no superpac. no, oh, it's just a handshake. no superpac yet. paperwork's still to come. and superpac! (cheers and applause) >> stephen: thank you very much. newly and superpacked t was time to head outside and address the colbert supernation. hello, nation. >> hello! >> stephen, stephen, stephen! >> stephen: i am here to represent your voice. so please quiet down so we can all hear what you have to say with my mouth. (laughter) >> stephen: fill owe americans, ladies and yes, supporters, friends, and federal employees with extremely generous lunch break policies, 60 days ago today, on this very spot a young man petitioned the fec for permission to form a superpac to raise unlimited monies and use the moneys to determine the winners of the 2012 elections. can anyone tell me -- (cheers and applause) >> stephen: can anyone tell me who that young man was. it was me. now some people have cynically asked is this some kind much joke? well, i for one don't think that participating in dem oblin
not have to disclose it. >> so the question of the day is, is this a joke? >> no. the fec ruled in his favor, and the fec is a very serious body. my favorite part of that whole sort of scene in washington today was that they panned out from the rest of the room, and you could see the faces of all of the fec folks on the board, and they were just beaming like we're finally getting our 15 minutes. but it is very serious. and this sets a precedent. now other folks on other channels who have political leanings such as sarah palin will be free to fund raise and advocate and, you know -- >> well, she order -- palin already has a pac. all they said today is if you discuss the pac on your show, that will not be considered a contribution from viacom or comedy central. it was a very minor point. it doesn't really change the landscape much. let's listen to colbert's answer to the question of, is this a joke? >> now, some people have cynically asked, is this some kind of joke? i for one don't think that participating in democracy is a joke. but i do have one federal election law joke if you'd like
, as long as the money isn't spent on specific candidates. the only restriction the fec imposed was he is only promote the superpac on his comedy central show. he responded to those who have questioned his sincerity. >> some people have cynically asked, is this some kind of joke? well, i for one don't think that participating in democracy is a joke. i don't think wanting to know what the rules are is a joke. but i do have one federal election law joke, if if you would like to hear it. knock knock. >> who's there! >> unlimited union and corporate campaign contributions. >> unlimited union and corporate campaign contributions who? >> that's the thing. i don't think i should have to tell you. >> for me, let me bring in ryan riley who has been reporting on this story for talking points memo. why is colbert doing this, ryan? >> evening it's part of an elaborate ruse on the commission to poke fun on some of the lack campaign finance regulations that have come up and sort of been an issue in recent months. it's something that a lot of -- you know, some of the good government groups are very c
to the big news, me. you see before the break the fec gave me permission to form colbert superpac and collect unlimited donations. when i merged from that crowd my g-string was stuffed with dollar bills. and i wasn't even wearing a g-string when i started. so thanks to whoever donated that. and the media reaction has been overwhelming. with headlines like colbert superpac pushes the limits of election law. cole pert superpac good for government and good for us, and colbert is a superpac la boeuf over transformers. (applause) >> stephen: no surprise. no surprise, my superpac and the transformer series have a lot in common. i can also rake in millions of dollars for no apparent reason. so -- (cheers and applause) >> stephen: folks, hogging the space a little bit there. so folks if you have not done so already go over to colbert superpac.com and sign up. so far over 94,000 of you have become members. and trust me, and one person clap -- and trust me, no, no, it's too late. and trust me, i will only use your e-mail addresses for good. you'll be buried under av an avalanche of spam not seen since
news. according to records filed with the f.e.c., newt's campaign is one million dollars in debt. folks, this is perfectly understandable. newt has major expenses. for instance, he spent $800,000 on his campaign web site. (laughter) now, sure, newt could have had his nine-year-old nephew design a web site and all he'd have to have paid him was one of his oreo snacksers-- snacksters, cakesters. but for 800k grand large, out got one flashy state-of-the-art interactive cyber web portal net. look! it's got a logo and it's clearly photo capable. (laughter) it's got a "donate" button. a "donate today" button. another "donate to support the campaign" button and a "donate now" button. so clearly... (laughter and applause) clearly the core message is getting out. still, i can't figure out why $800,000... wait a minute... is that a facebook share icon? (laughter) those aren't cheep! so clearly every penny accounted for. but the rest of newt debt stems from his frequent private jet travel, like the $400,000 he presently owes moby dick airways. (laughter) at
in the order they have given it to me. remember, according to the fec this is 100% legal and at least 10% ethical. (laughter) i'm so grateful that i would like to thank the election commissioners by name and i will as soon as they donate. (laughter) of course-- (applause) >> stephen: folk, yeah, good people. cory, martin, jonathan wu, good people. of course some will say that my new cash crawl just proves that this much money in politics is a problem. but is it really? and if so, how much money will it take to make the problem go away. to find out i spoke to people on both sides of this issue. sheila krumholz the executive director of the center for responsive politics a group that advocates transparentsy in campaign finance, fine with me, i'm using my money to develop an invisibility cloak. and on the other side, sean parnell from the center of competitive politics. they support unlimited and untrackable money in politics and i don't have to tell you what that means to me. seriously, thanks to their work i don't have to tell you anything. i recently sat down with both of these advocates

that sort of come up because of citizens united. the fec has come under criticism because a lot of people don't think it's enforcing to a great extent. it's not enough disclosures. i think this sort of poked fun at the situation and brought it to a larger audience. this is something the fec typically never has anywhere near this type of size of audience coming out to any of their meetings. i mean, it's usually typically a few reporters and some lawyer so show up. but this is a situation where you had throngs of people sta standing outside of the commission, and you had lines down the block with people trying to get in. >> but one thing i noted, one commissioner who voted against colbert, what was his reason? >> he was on the conservative side. he had some technical questions, but i think broadly he agreed with most of the impetus of the decision. >> but some groups were concerned this ruling would set a dangerous precedent. do they have reason to be worried? >> to a certain extent. what the commission ended up deciding is that they would be allowed to pay for any expenditures on his netwo
campaign in 2008. fec is saying today he has to repay that money essentially because they sort of over stated the amount of money they brought in, and understated the amount of money they put out. we have not been able to speak yet to attorneys for john edwards. they have obviously been heavily involved in all the trouble he has had for so many months now. however, we do know that he said previously that he has not done anything wrong in relation to the indictment in north carolina. we suspect -- and there is some other reporting out there suggesting that his attorneys are saying he doesn't owe this money. so it looks like an accounting function by the federal election commission and we also know that were john edwards actually to go through trial and be convicted, then the fec would have a whole new can of worms to deal with in relation to money he received in the 2008 campaign. so that's what we know. $2.3 million. the fec says he has to repay it. this is not a completely final decision, because we're told that he can appeal it, and it's highly likely that he will appeal it, as a mat
the affair, right? >> not directly, shep. this is a copy of the full audit. and according to the fec it amounts to accounting issues over federal funds, not illegal activity. a statement sent to us from the fec said in part the commission has an obligation to ensure that candidates who participate in the presidential matching funds program use those public funds consistent with the law and repayment determinations are one tool the commission has to fulfill that obligation. one commissioner described this as being, quote, just a math problem. on the other hand, it all adds to the murkiness of the edwards campaign funding. given that the chief accusation against him in the ongoing federal case is that he did, indeed, funnel campaign cash to the effort to hide that affair with rielle hunter. shep? >> shepard: as of "studio b" this afternoon nobody from john edwards' camp has talked. what about now? >> one of edwards' attorney has just now told the associated press they will appeal this ruling. campaign account which at the end of last month had 2.6 million in cash on hand. edwards, of c
and american express. very colbert. by a 5-1 vote the fec today approved colbert's superpac which will let him raise money and buy tv time for political ads. smart move, fec, if there's one thing you don't want it's a feud with stephen colbert. although i have to say when that opportunity presented itself to anderson he didn't shy away as you'll see in this ridiculist classic. >> all right. time for the ridiculist. i got to admit i struggled tonight whether or not to add this person to the list. but i decided in the end that enough is enough. so tonight we're adding a man by the name of steven colbert to the list. now, at first i must admit hyde forgotten who steven colbert is. colbert? really? the t is silent. stephen colbert, apparently, my team of p.r. professionals actually tell me i have been on mr. colbert's show but i have no memory of that. anyway, a couple of weeks ago i put sean hannity on the ridiculist because a clip he showed of me which changed the meaning of what i said. mr. colbert took issue and accused me of copying him. he went so far as to create something called the absurd

quarterly reports, the fec documents -- in documents in which campaigns actually have to tell the truth about fundraising, we discover mitt romney's big lie. remember back in may when romney claimed to have raised $10 million in a one-day phone-a-thon? the political media was really impressed with that haul. it's the kind of fact that makes them bet on romney to win the republican nomination. the truth? turns out the lie romney told that day was exactly 20% true. the campaign did not raise $10 million that day, it raised only $2 million. so please, rewind all those comments from pundits impressed with romney's $10 million in one day and see how their statements sound when the number turns out to be 1/5 of that. former house speaker and big spender newt gingrich ended the quarter over $1 million in debt without the campaign buying any jewelry at all. the gingrich campaign owes nearly $1 million for the use of private jets -- half a $1 million for private jets. the name of the company gingrich uses for renting private jets is -- this is not a joke, moby dick airways. joining me now, alex
